Adipose-derived Exosomes Improve Wound Healing


Exosomes derived from adipose stem cells have been the focus of a large number studies seeking to improve wound healing, a recent review published in Cell Proliferation reports.

According to the article abstract, in the wound, these exosomes modulate immune responses and inflammation. They also promote angiogenesis, accelerate the proliferation and re‐epithelization of skin cells, and regulate collagen remodeling, which inhibits scar hyperplasia.

Compared with other adipose-derived stem cell therapeutics, exosomes show high stability and are easily stored. Additionally, they are not rejected by the immune system and their dosage can be easily controlled. Full details are available in the open access article.
